The Chase RCMP are investigating a break and enter at the eco-depot located at 1595 Martin Prairie Road in Pritchard.

Overnight on Feb. 17, three suspects cut the fence at the recycling depot which is managed by the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD). Several items were taken including bottles and a mattress.

Also on the property crime front, the Chase RCMP are still looking for those responsible for an early-February break in on Kamloops Shuswap Road. Thieves entered a commercial garage in the 5500 block through a broken window and took three sets of Goodyear Duratrac tires. They also stole a yellow Champion brand generator, a green and black Ryobi generator, a Husquavarna chain saw, a Stihl brush saw and various hand tools.

Anyone with any information regarding these investigations, or any other crime, is asked to contact the Chase detachment at 250-679-3221, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
